Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG) Expansion and Arts Court Redevelopment in Canada by KPMB Architects

 
June 20th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: KPMB Architects

The Ottawa Art Gallery expansion and Arts Court Redevelopment involves the careful integration of a new building and the redistribution of arts organizations within the existing Arts Court complex to create an integrated arts community. The project is a priority of the City of Ottawa Renewed Action Plan for Arts Heritage and Culture (2013-2018). Included in the project are: a new home for the Ottawa Art Gallery (OAG), a new 120-seat black box theatre and rehearsal studios for the University of Ottawa (UOttawa), a new 245-seat OAG multi-purpose screening room, repurposed space within the existing Arts Court complex, and a 21-storey private sector tower that will house a Le Germain hotel and private condominium with underground parking. The project aspires to create a destination for patrons of the arts as well as provide identity for the OAG and the other arts organizations currently housed in the Arts Court. The new exterior north entry court and interior atrium off Daly Avenue shall serve to provide a new accessible entrance and central hub for all of the arts organizations within the expanded Arts Court. Located one level up from the North entry court on Daly Avenue is the OAG lobby with its’ main entrance and associated South entry court off Waller Street. Taken together these two entry courts define a north -south axis of clearly delineated address and circulation. Equally important and working in tandem with these access points is the east-west axis which is defined by the extension of the existing primary circulation corridor in the existing Arts Court building. The new building and the existing complex will be linked along this axis at the concourse, main, and second floor levels. This east-west axis is immediately accessible from the North Atrium at the concourse level and the OAG lobby at the main level and terminates at the SAW Gallery entry court at the west and the UOttawa entry on the east. This linkage is critical to the success of the project and requires the relocation of an existing exit stair that is currently located at the eastern end of the existing corridor effectively blocking the proposed connection.

Background of the project

The project is located in Pudong, Shanghai. It is the basement of a typical Shanghai old mansion in the 90’s. It has all the typical features of Shanghai’s “Old and Small”. In addition to the two mothers and sons, the owner has 40 cats and 2 dogs. Everyone is crowded together to live in this 48m2 ground floor space. The entire space is full of cages, and human space is backlogged by extreme limits. This has also caused The contradiction between mother and son arises. At the same time, due to the high density of human pets, the light is dim, and various smells are mixed together, making the air quality very poor, and the health conditions are very embarrassing.

Stone house in Lukovo Šugarje, Croatia by Proarh d.o.o.

 
June 20th, 2018 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Proarh d.o.o.

Stone house is a one family holiday retreat, situated only few meters from the Adriatic sea, in a  dense matrix of holiday houses.

This existing chaos, cramped, narrow plot, limited construction laws and program assignment, make this a complex postulation but also a metaphorical ” noise ” of context. In such ”noise” the architectural language has to become quieter and create a concise expression. Is this expression then ”to fit in” or ”not to fit in”, and is it possible to become positively ambivalent, where such ambivalence would mean avoiding the derogatory fitting in but also avoiding a forced standing out , due to author’s ambition?

Comfort and building maintenance throughout the years are two fundamental aspects for houses built in tropical areas next to the sea, where the high temperatures and the effect of the sea air determine the extreme local conditions. The White House project, located on a beautiful Brazilian beach, on the northern coast of São Paulo, made these questions as determinant to organize the plan and for the selection of materials to be used.

Unfurled House in Sydney, Australia by christopher polly architect

An articulated two-storey framed volume is sensitively stitched to the rear original fabric, while retaining its front Federation masonry and hipped envelope as part of its environmental, economic and planning values. It has a sectional split-level relationship to the original house that harnesses the fall of the site to the rear, enabling the cellular front plan to vertically and horizontally unfurl into a series of connected interior spaces that expand to its setting.

Nave Industrial RX (Xray Factory) in Morelia, Mexico by EMILIO ALVAREZ ABOUCHARD ARQUITECTURA

Article source: EMILIO ALVAREZ ABOUCHARD ARQUITECTURA

The NaveIndustrialRX (RXFactory) project started with the operation of a radioactive source for the steel industry. Safety was the main concern of the client, not only because of the radioactive source but because of the building itself. The first and most important outline in design was choosing concrete as the main construction material. The whole building was modulated according to the metallic panels used to cast the concrete: factory’s floors and walls are constructed in multiples of 60cm leaving it exposed, which helped us to arrange the constructive and compositional elements of architecture.
